A touch of nostalgia

In case you haven't heard, the government of tiny New Zealand is setting an example for the world by banning single-use plastic bags.

You know, those that we invented so that we can save the forest.

In their place, we now have cloth-like reusable bags and paper bags with little string handles like this.

Well, today Hubby stopped by the store after work and brought things home in a few of the paper bags. [Yes, we have many of the other kind but, of course, forget to put them back in the car!]


As I was folding the bags up after everything was put away, I had a
nostalgia attack.

I was taken back to grade school when we covered our books with shopping bags to keep them clean. Each year, I really enjoyed getting out the scissors and folding the paper just right!

Ah, those were the days....


One of these is not like the others

We are house-sitting for a friend for a few months and she has six cats we feed each day. She also has a muscovy duck that eats cat food.

Life is interesting!
